A very civilised ski holiday with beautiful scenery, a good variety of skiing and excellent food at lunchtimes. Also a friendly and sociable bunch of fellow travellers. No worries if you are a solo traveller.
Our guide Bob was an excellent tour guide and ski instructor who coped admirably with the challenging and unseasonable snow conditions. He was a real resource of helpful information whether he was teaching ski technique, helping us decipher the lunch menu or making suggestions for the free day. I would say though, there were times I found Bob somewhat officious but this may have been due to having to manage such a large group.
The hotel is comfortably warm so there is no need to wear sweaters or layers in the evenings. Also, if you are a light sleeper you may find the light or noise from the street bothersome if you've been allocated a road side room.
My only disappointment with this trip was the village of Trins itself. It is quite small, consisting of just one through road with a few shops and businesses either side, and rather lacking in any real character. There is nothing to do in Trins apart from using the facilities at the hotel, namely the bar and sauna. There are more interesting towns and villages nearby but local transport is limited so exploring elsewhere is best left for the free day. So in spite of the enjoyable skiing this is not somewhere I would be tempted to visit again.
The start hotel is approximately 1 hour from Innsbruck airport and will cost around 10 Euros to reach by public transport. Yoiu can also get there from otehr cities and airports, please contact for more details.

Hotel Wienerhof is a comfortable base situated in the heart of the village of Trins. The traditional main building has a cosy dining room and separate bar, while just across the narrow village street the modern annexe houses a sauna and enhanced relaxation area (no charge) along with the opportunity for a massage (not included).
The hotel is renowned for its food; most evenings we have three choices of main course, plus a vegetarian option, and there is always a plentiful salad buffet. Complimentary tea, coffee and cake are served each afternoon. Austrian-twin and single rooms have shower and WC and may be in either the main building or the annexe. All rooms are equipped with TV, telephone, hair dryer and code operated safe.
A word of warning about Austria for people sharing ‘twin-bedded rooms’: these often contain a single unit with two separate mattresses and separate bedding; it is not usually possible to move them apart, though it may sometimes be possible to add an extra bed - please check with us if this is important to you. It is possible to share a room with someone on the concurrent winter walking holiday.

No, it's not essential, although any previous experience will be a bonus! There are different weeks specially graded for beginners, so make sure you pick the correct week to begin with. It should specify in the brochure and on the website but if you're not sure, just contact Exodus. If there are 2 different grades happening in the same week, you can sometimes switch to a higher grade towards the end of the week if you feel you have gained sufficient experience.
